Soulful Femme is the professional name of the Blues, Funk and Jazz duo of Stevee Wellons (vocals) and Cheryl Rinovato (guitars). The ladies made their recording debut in 2020 with two singles; “Step Right on In” and “Judgement Day.” They’re back for 2021 with their first full length release.
Both Stevee and Cheryl are accomplished veteran musicians in their own right. Wellons is a multiple award-winning vocalist who has spent the last 25 years entertaining audiences throughout Western PA and beyond. She has also recorded in professional studios around the country. Rinovato is a graduate of Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. Like her bandmate, the guitarist has won numerous awards and has rubbed shoulders on stage with some of the biggest names in Blues.
“It Is Well With My Soul” is the brand new album from Soulful Femme, released worldwide to all major streaming services on June 4th, 2021. The duo is introducing their first LP with the wailing blues of the single “40 Under.” The track is a slow burn, opening on a low and cool guitar/vocal intro. The mix builds through the first half. Eventually joined by a crack rhythm section, the ladies gradually turn up the heat until the ensemble bubbles with soul fire. By the end of the tune Stevee and Cheryl trade soaring vocal and slide guitar licks. It’s a powerful sound.
